  • Reckless op is going 20 plus over posted speed limit. He *could* get his license removed and the fines are going to be hefty as well as the points on his license. I know where i live every mile over the speed limit is 10 dollars. So if he was going 20 over thats a automatic 200.00. Man that sucks!

  • it's a super speeder ticket. If you're going 20 or more above the speed limit, they consider it reckless driving....which it is....

  • Or if you cross either of the lines on the road, or just weave between them... there's all kinds of reasons, especially if he was speeding on top of it. Expect them NOT to take it lightly.

  • Swerving while speeding?

  • Well, reckless driving is a lot more severe than a speeding ticket for sure and more expensive. I got pulled over for reckless speeding in my Porsche on the way back from Vegas and got it reduced to speeding. Whew! You just touched the gas and this baby goes. I guess a low cut top and short skirt helped the cause. Thinks auto insurance is expensive on my car, try adding a reckless ticket. Oy Vey!
    Bottomline, your insurance will go up for a period of time and will be noted on your driving record. Should have your attorney get it reduced since it will cost you more.

  • I got one a few months after high school - I wasn't really speeding (maybe 5 over) but I was taking corners too fast, spinning through sand on the road, and I forget what else. I was trying to chase down someone that had something of mine and a cop saw me :S. He said the reckless driving was cheaper than speeding. Idk. I paid it and haven't had a ticket since (it's been over 10 years).
